Enhancing the quality of life for Karen and other refugees from Burma in Minnesota

2nd Annual KOM Gala

The Karen Organization of Minnesota will hold our 2nd Annual Gala on Thursday, October 11, from 6:00-9:00pm in the Kay Fredericks Ballroom at Hamline University's Klas Center. We invite you to join us for this exciting event!

KOM's Annual Gala is a special occasion to celebrate our achievements and partnerships over the past year. Guests will enjoy a social hour with a cash bar, a silent auction, dinner, and a short program to highlight the successes of KOM and the refugees we serve. It promises to be an exciting evening for people who have journeyed with KOM through our first three years of providing services as well as for those who have not yet had the pleasure of getting to know our new neighbors from Burma. Proceeds from the gala will support KOM's programs that help refugees from Burma transition to life in the United States.
